NuGen extends successful alliance with PricewaterhouseCoopers

NuGen, the British developer taking forward Europe’s largest new nuclear power station at Moorside in Cumbria (and a BECBC member), this week announced the continuation of a successful partnership with advisors PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

NuGen has worked closely with the globally-recognised advisors during the past two years, which has seen NuGen treble its workforce, relocate to Manchester and power forward with its Moorside Project to build three AP1000® reactors on land adjacent to Sellafield.

NuGen announced the signing of a new three-year agreement for PwC to support the company as it continues to grow through the development phase of its Moorside Project.

PwC has assisted NuGen during a period of rapid expansion, supporting them in developing a world-class operating model and helping implement their strategy for information technology. 

René Lauwers, NuGen’s Director of Programme Management, welcomed the news. “NuGen has been growing and developing rapidly as a nuclear company with the credibility to take forward this nationally important and internationally significant project. We are delighted to continue our development with the support of PwC.”

Steve Randle, PwC's UK Nuclear Consulting Lead, said: “PwC is delighted to be supporting NuGen in their project to bring a large amount of low carbon base-load electricity to the UK, as well as the economic boost that this will bring to the North West.”
